    Good question.
    Since our office is in our home, business in our backyard is literally in our back yard. And when you see those potential clients on a daily basis, you start to get choosy. There are 4 or so neighbors that we’ve done work for over the years. One was such an incredible pain in the ass that even if he asked us to give him a price, we’d most definitely decline the invitation. Another didn’t pay us on a very timely basis and when we charged him the very low interest rate we were charging for late fees he had a fit. Those were both very early in our career. The other two we’ve done small jobs on and off for them over the years including this year.
    So to answer the question Strike Back or Dust Off — in our case I think we’d say Dust Off or more succinctly — “We probably wouldn’t want to work for you anyway”. We’ve been here for 15 years and we know our neighbors pretty darn well.

      That’s great point Nancy…what happens when you do the work and they turn out to be a hassle?!? Good food for thought. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
